Iris Along the Trail

Yesterday was one of those perfect, warm spring days in May that we get so seldom around here. Well, actually, we've had more of them this spring than I can remember in a long time! Anyway, with a temperature of 80 degrees accompanied by a pleasant soft breeze, we decided that a woodsy walk was just what we needed after our Church meetings. We headed out to walk along the trails in the Mount Talbert Nature Park which is only 15 minutes away. Among the various dainty spring flowers on display we also came along stretches where the Oregon Iris was blooming happily! Naturally, I was taking photos....and naturally it would become the painting of the day. :)
